This book discusses the design of the new mobility assistive information and communication technologies (ICT) devices for the visually impaired. The book begins with a definition of the space concept, followed by the concept of interaction with a space during mobility and this interaction characteristics. The contributors will then examine the neuro-cognitive basis of space perception for mobility and different theories of space perception. The text presents the existing technologies for space perception (sense recovery with stem and iPS cells, implants, brain plasticity, sensory substitution devices, multi modal technologies, etc.), the newest technologies for mobility assistance design, the way the feedback on environment is conveyed to the end-user. Methods for formative and summative evaluations of the mobility devices will also be discussed. The book concludes with a look to the future trends in research and technology development for mobility assistive information and communication technologies.

Edwige Pissaloux is a Full Professor at the University of Rouen, Physics Department, and closely collaborates with the ISIR (Institute for Intelligent Systems and Robotics) at Paris-Sorbonne University and the MIT (France-MIT program). She has authored more than 250 journals and conferences papers. Prof. Pissaloux main research interests are the modeling and design of vision systems, cognitive perception systems, and cognitive mobility systems. Her research has been supported by European funds (EU FP7 Research and Innovation Funding Program), national funds (CNRS, CEA), and international projects (France-UK-Mexico). Prof. Pissaloux is a member of several international advisory boards of universities and research institutes, and teaches in several universities (Australia, Hong-Kong, Canada). She frequently acts as an international expert for several research bodies and international institutions such as the European Commission, NSF/USA, Canada, UK, Australia, China, Switzerland, etc.Prof. Pissaloux initiated a series of national conferences such as "Space and its perception: application to design of assistive technologies" or "Eye, gaze and interaction". She has participated and/or co-animated European Excellence networks.In her free time, Prof. Pissaloux teaches violin for visually impaired children.Ramiro Velázquez is an Associate Professor at the Faculty of Engineering of Universidad Panamericana (Aguascalientes, Mexico). He is past Dean of the Faculty of Engineering and currently serves as Vice-President for Research and member of the Board of Governors of this university.He obtained the PhD in Robotics from UPMC-Paris 6 Sorbonne University in 2006. He has authored more than 100 journals and conferences papers. Prof. Velázquez main research interests are assistive technologies, haptic and tactile devices, mechatronic systems, and human-computer interaction. His research projects in assistive devices for visually impaired and blind people have been featured in IEEE Spectrum, CNN, and BBC Horizons. Prof. Velázquez frequently serves as an expert evaluator for the European Commission, CONACYT (Mexico), and COLCIENCIAS (Colombia). He is a member of the Mexican National Systems of Researchers (SNI-Level I).
